Meet Grumpy Grandpa Cuify. Cuify is a 6 year old Lhasa Apso cross. Cuify (pronounced Choofy) has had a very sad life. He was found on the streets in Romania, he was probably malnourished and has some deformity in his front legs, but it doesn’t stop him getting about. Cuify came to the UK several years ago and was adopted by a wonderful lady who tragically died suddenly, leaving her beloved dogs behind leaving him homeless again.
Cuify was a very scared confused dog and quite unpredictable when he first arrived and would bite if scared or in pain. He has progressed very well but will still need to be handled carefully.
Once you understand his quirks he really is no bother, however he MUST be muzzled on walks, being groomed or if visitors come to the home.
He loves a routine and enjoys his walks. He goes to daycare at kennels whilst in foster which he loves as he can bark and boss about the other dogs there. He enjoys it so much he waits by the door crying until it’s time to leave. He adores car trips and looking out of the window.
He is reactive with other dogs out and about but he is used to living in a multi-dog household. He would prefer calm, non dominant dogs or to be an only dog. He has lived with cats and birds also. He loves walks but sometimes his little legs get stiff so he won’t need long walks, just a potter down the road would be fine.
He loves to cuddle and sleep in bed with you if you will let him. He does not like being left and would like to be with his owner most of the time. He is neutered chipped and vaccinated. He occasionally needs painkillers for his legs. Provided his owner can manage his reactiveness on the leash and doesn’t put him in situations that make him uncomfortable he would make a lovely companion dog for someone a bit older and retired who possible doesn’t want to do long walks. His adoption fee is reduced to £150.
